The best rules for camp are the Scout Oath and Scout Law paired with good common sense. To avoid misunderstanding, the following conditions also prevail.
Thank you for your cooperation and have a GREAT CAMPOUT! Please have the courtesy to call the camp if you cancel your plans within two days of your arrival date.
RESERVATIONS: Order and registration numbers will be issued with the completion of an online reservation. Reservations are confirmed only when a confirmation email has been issued from the online reservation system. All reservations are accepted on a first come basis. In the event of an emergency, the council reserves the right to cancel reservations with 24 hours’ notice. Unpaid reservations will be held for ten business days. After 10 days, the reservation will be removed from the online system. Camp cannot be responsible for the loss or damage of group or personal items.
CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS: Refunds must be requested in writing at least 14 days before the reservation. Refunds requested within 14 days of the reservation will be issued at the discretion of the LHC Camping Department. Requests after the reservation date or for no-shows will not be considered. If it becomes necessary to close a facility due to inclement weather or another emergency, you will be notified and given an opportunity to reschedule. Do not assume that a camp is closed due to inclement weather. Refunds will be issued via check, less a 10% processing fee. Credit toward future events will not be given.
BUILDING CAPACITIES: Building capacities are set by the local Board of Health and/or Fire Marshall and are not to be exceeded under any circumstances. Groups that exceed the listed building capacity must tent overflow campers outside, or rent additional facilities. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors are installed for your safety. It is both illegal and extremely dangerous to tamper with or disable them. Violators may lose camping privileges- please tell Camp Ranger or Campmaster if you have a malfunctioning alarm.
INFRACTIONS: The Laurel Highlands Council Executive Board has designated the Camp Ranger or designee as authority for dealing with any rule infractions. If immediate safety of others is put in jeopardy, groups may be immediately expelled and no refund will be issued. For serious or repeated infractions, such as not following proper check out procedures, the Laurel Highlands Council may deny the use of the camps to a group. If common laws are broken, local police may be notified.
The council has updated their COVID-19 guidelines for camping. Please be sure to review and share with the other parents and volunteers in your unit. The document is found at the following link: https://www.lhcscouting.org/sites/lhcscouting.org/files/lhc_covid_camping_guidelines_updated_09232020.pdf
Every youth and adult that will be camping at any of the LHC camps will be required to have a signed copy of the COVID-19 participant waiver. That waiver can be found at the following link: https://www.lhcscouting.org/sites/lhcscouting.org/files/lhc_covid_participant_waiver.pdf
By checking the box, you are agreeing to the LHC camping policies and COVID-19 guidelines for rentals and that the participant waivers will be signed by all participants, youth and adult, that are attending the campout with the unit.
Refunds must be requested in writing at least 14 days before the event. Refunds requested within 14 days of the event will be issued at the discretion of the LHC Camping Department. Requests after the event or for no-shows will not be considered.
Refunds will be issued via check, less a 10% processing fee. Credit toward future events will not be given.
A Scout leaves a place cleaner than they found it. If staying in a cabin, please clean and remove trash before checking out. If cleaning supplies are needed, please see the Ranger or Campmaster.
Practice Leave No Trace principles in campsites.
